2009 Health Trend to Watch For: Nutrition Bars as a Meal
· Read the labels: choose bars with low sugar, high protein (about 30 g for a meal; 15 g for a snack).
· Be ready to pay a little more for the bar with more nutrients.
· Meal bars should not be the main source of your diet. Eat a variety of meats, vegetables, dairy, and fruit for an overall healthy diet.
· Check out the bars at Ellipse! We did the homework for you.
